"It is notorious that football teams are largely composed of professional mercenaries who are hired to advertise colleges.” Col. John Mosby (The Gray Ghost) circa 1910


LAST WEEK (6-1)-----OVERALL (66-15)

plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose

Tennessee-Chattanooga @ Alabama – UTC has no business being on the field against Alabama, but I guess it pays the bills. Tide 60 – UTC 7.

Florida International @ Florida – FIU has no business being on the field against Florida, but I guess it pays the bills. Gators 60 – FIU 7.

Mississippi State @ Arkansas – Time for MSU to finally beat somebody, but it won’t be this week. The Pigs are on a minor roll and they’re playing at home. Arkansas 27 – MSU 14.

LSU @ Mississippi – How to figure Ole Miss? Play like Vandy one week, and next play like Alabama. Maybe the ship has been righted. Mississippi 24 – LSU 20

Kentucky @ Georgia – UK may have been able to run all over Vandy last week, but the Dawgs will have different ideas about that this week. Georgia will stop the run, and UK can’t pass worth a darn. UGA 34 – UK 24

Vanderbilt @ Tennessee – One good thing about not having a bye week………….. the agony of this football season will be over soon for Commodore fans. The Vols should be able to make bail for enough players to beat Vandy. After all, they only have to score once. UTK 28 – VU 6
